Live workshop Reykjavík Art festival 2014

We lead a live workshop during the Reykjavík Arts Festival 2014. With the support from Aurora Fund the event took place in Spark Design Space where the team did tackle challenges cross disciplinary. With their creativity, curiosity, problem solving skills and prototyping abilities using 3d printers something unexpected did happen during this exploration. Visit our blog to see whats happened every day.. 


Selected by bility

For some years we at Studiobility have been involved in design education. What we have noticed is that there are few opportunities for newly graduated creatives when they are taking their first steps in product design. Therefor we are starting this new platform  "Selected by Bility" where we invite them to design a new product where everyone gain in the process.

With the help of our new Icelandic Design Fund and our experience working with design, development and business we where able to invite the first three selected designers to participate!  They are: Thorleifur Gunnar GíslasonElín Bríta Sigvaldadóttir, og Jón Helgi Hólmgeirsson

BILITY PRODUCTS

 

After the financial crises in 2008 our team at Studiobility sat down to think of something new to create. Something that would be affordable, light and easy to ship all over the world. A new product, that would be beautiful, tell our story and reflect on Icelandic nature & narratives.

The new creation became the brand ,,Bility" small flat pack products, designed by various designers that draw their inspiration from Icelandic nature, experiences or cultural roots, each telling its own story.

The products are designed in Iceland and made in Europe (UK and Iceland). We only work with companies that focus on recycling or/and are eco-labeled. The products are digitally etched from stainless steel and packaging contains no harmful inks; both are recyclable

Bility is a small family business, a growing branch of our studio Studiobility.

ROUGE BUNNY ROUGE

Together with the Creative Director of the Intricate and luxurious cosmetics brand Rouge Bunny Rouge and our team at Studiobility we worked on proposals for the physical expression of the brand, including Shop in a Shop concepts, Perfume bootle designs and various POS designs.


VISITOR CENTRE 

Working with the The Environment Agency of Iceland on developing concept and designing a National Park Visitor Centre in North East of Iceland.

 We also worked with the Soil Conservation Service of Iceland  on a new Visitor Centre: Sagnagarður

For both projects we worked on concept development, design of exhibition, project management and production management. Our team at Studiobility worked with a transdisciplinary team of scientist, locals, directors of the National Park and Soil conservation plus various companies to be able to design and build places of unique experience. 

We like to explore companies and their possibilities

Merking is a manufacturer that we like to work with on projects, they got a new material Re-board in house and asked us to make something out of it. We made a very strong rocking chair, shelf system that has no clue or screws and a table.

A pulp factory located in north east of Iceland producing euro pallets from paper was the inspiration of a new project. 

Coffins and urns made out of recycled paper, we called the project forget-me-not. The factory went bankrupt but we continued with the project. In 2009 we got funding from the Aurora to do a prototype of the design and to do a market research. Our research led to a very subtle and classic design of a coffin and urn – cooperating with engineers to make it strong enough for burring and enough “food” for the fire during the cremation process. The first prototype was exhibited at DesignMarch 2010. Due to the crises in Iceland and the factory gone bankrupt we did not develop this project any further and placed in the “drawer” in 2011.  We where very happy to find out that a similar idea has now been developed with a company called Dancof
